Poll: New Jersey Residents Want To Hold Off On Christie’s Proposed Tax Cut
By Al Novack
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - A Quinnipiac University telephone survey of New Jersey residents indicates that a majority of people are willing to hold off any state tax cuts until more facts are known.
According to the poll of about 1,400 residents in the Garden State are against rushing through Governor Chris Christie’s call to pass a tax cut immediately.
“52% agree with the Democrats,” Poll director Maurice Carroll said. “They say wait and see what the situation is like. While 39% agree with the governor that we ought to vote for a tax cut now and that tax cut situation has been obscured by all the focus on the presidential election, but it’s a real New Jersey Issue and it’s going to continue.”
The poll was done by phone between October 10th and the 14th and has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.6-percent.
